about

This song was written during Laura’s time in Ethiopia. After a frustrating day of complete mistranslation with a local woman she realised that this communication breakdown could be so destructive no matter what the hearts intention was. On this day, it felt easier to give up than to fight through the complications that were left over.

lyrics

Something so simple
Is now so complicated
I said one thing you heard another
And my tower came crumbling down

And I feel lost, I feel lost in Tower of Babel
I’m feeling lost, lost in the Tower of Babel

I thought we saw eye to eye
But my heart was mistranslated
And it seems its for the cause that we don’t build on our own strength but
It don’t stop my frustration

Apathy takes over me
Seems deeds only breakdown
But if you could see my heart
We might not be so bound.
